It’s the dawn of a new day for “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart.
Stewart will star in director Elizabeth Banks’ movie reboot of “Charlie’s Angels,” Sony pictures announced Thursday. Fellow Angels will be played by Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska.
Besides directing, Banks is producing, co-writing and starring as Bosley in the new incarnation of the Angels saga.
The movie continues on the famed TV series which ran from 1976 to 1981, centering around three women working in a private detective agency run by the mysterious Charles Townsend — only heard over speaker phone (voiced by John Forsythe).
The new film will focus on the Townsend Agency, which has gone global, providing security and intelligence services to a wide variety of private clients. The three new stars and Bosley will form one of these teams.
Bosley (whose full name was John Bosley) was played by the late David Doyle in the original series.
“Charlie’s Angels, for me, is one of the original brands to celebrate the empowered woman since its debut in the 70s,” said Banks in a statement. “This film honors the legacy of Charles Townsend and his agency while introducing a new era of modern and global Angels.”
Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu starred in a 2000 comedy reboot movie (the first reboot) which made $265 million worldwide.
The new crew will appear on screens September 29, 2019.
